Back WERTHER to win the Queensland Derby with William Hill's Group One Racing Refund

WERTHER is the shortest priced favourite out of the three Group One Races at Doomben on Saturday. Back a winner in each of the feature events and get you money back if your selections run second or third.

This Saturday marks the most exhilarating time on the Queensland Racing calendar with Stradbroke Day taking place at Doomben! The Stradbroke handicap is not only the feature event of a 9 race meeting in Brisbane but it’s also the jewel in the crown of the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival. The race is the penultimate event on Saturday and one of 3 gripping Group Ones to be held. The JJ Atkins and Queensland Derby will also take centre stage; races 6 and 7 respectively. If you fancy having a bet on the big 3 events make sure it’s with William Hill and you could save up to $300 if you don’t pick a winner!

Group One Refund

William Hill have a cracking cash back offer on all 3 Group Ones at Doomben this Saturday. Back a horse to win the J.J Atkins, Queensland Derby and or Stradbroke Handicap and if your selection runs 2nd or 3rd, you’ll get your money back. William Hill will return a maximum of $100 per race. Your first win bet on each race qualifies for this superb special. Out of the big 3 races only 1 horse is under $3 and that’s the Queensland Derby favourite.

WERTHER to Win the Queensland Derby

WERTHER opened at over $3 but has come in by about $1 to be the even hotter favourite for the Queensland Derby. The 3 year old gelding dominated older Group One horses at the same track and distance in the Group Two Eagle Farm Cup last weekend and looks ready to do the same against his own age. His last start win is also a good omen, with 5 of the last 8 Derby winners coming off a previous race victory. Expect jockey Jimmy Byrne to settle the Kiwi horse in a nice position from the inside gate. Only 2 favourites have won the Queensland Derby since 2005; it should be 3 on Saturday, with WERTHER the one to beat.

Whether you want WERTHER to win the Queensland Derby or fancy another runner to steal the show, place your wager with William Hill. But why not have a throw at the Stumps in the JJ Atkins first and of course save some money for the Stradbroke Handicap!
